When I played this on my shitty little speakers last night on my computer I thought it sounded dope, but today when I played it in my car with a decent system I thought it sounded wack. Am i the only 1?
Kanye ain't really a "damn this bumps in the system" type of artist/producer

Yep, Ive also burned it on a cd and bumped in a car yesterday, didnt really bang hard, except 1 or 2 tracks. Its more of a mp3 player kind of music.

Excellent album with the exception of that track with Mos Def. One miss on an album is fine by me though. This may be my favorite Kanye album, but I gotta give it a few more spins.

Nobody is mentioning "Everything I Am"?  I think that track is amazing.  And yeah, "Big Brother" gave me chills too.  Great album besides the Mos Def track.

Ok, I've given the album like 5 spins now, so I'll write a little review. I normally don't do this because I suck at reviewing, but it's whatever.

Good Morning - Nice little intro. It immediately gets you in the mood to listen to the new Kanye West album.

Champion - Nice up-tempo song. I like Kanye's flow and the transition from Ye's rap to the singer's vocals.

Stronger - This track doesn't fit the album, but as an individual track it's not bad at all.

I Wonder - The production on this track is great. Really chill track to listen to.

Good Life - Fucking T-Pain!! When I first heard the track I thought it was so dope. So far I've listened to this track the most, but guess what? T-Pain sings false. When he goes like "I'ma put shit doooooown" that last word is so false. His voice should also be more powerful. Remember Tony Williams who shined on We Major on Late Registration? He would have murked it!!

Can't Tell Me Nothing - Not the best song on the album, but it's a good song. It fits the vibe of the album well.

Barry Bonds - Meh, I'm not feeling this one so much.

Drunk & Hot Girls - WTF is this? He better use this as a single, so it at least has a purpose.

Flashing Lights - I like the production. Kanye comes nice, Dwele is such a good singer. I love this song!

Everything I Am - Close your eyes and listen to the piano. Great song!

The Glory - Nice up-speed sample, Kanye raps good... Nothing wrong with this track.

Homecoming - Chris Martin is a king when it comes down to guest features. Great song, best on the album!

Big Brother - Good song. I like the lyrics.



Overall, this is a good album, but it has its weaker moments. I'm gonna bitch on Good Life again: if it had a better singer I could play it more than 15 times. The tracks with Mos Def and Lil Wayne are really disappointing. Production wise it doesn't fuck with Late Registration. The overall vibe is good, but I feel like it's not as good as Late Registration or The College Dropout.

Wow, lotta hate for drunk and hot girls. I actually like the song because it's different. It also sounds a lot better on a hi-end stereo system too. Flashing Lights is easily becomming one of my favorites though.

Barry Bonds is the shit, and i'm not saying that because I like Lil Wayne (no homo).
